This is an excellent way to get your students to think about cowboys and cowgirls. My students love this it allows them to think why they would like to be a cowboy/cowgirl. This is an opinion writing mixed in with graphic organizers. There are many videos on You tube you can introduce cowboy life with.
Graphic organizer with are-can-have space to write
Graphic organizer to write their thinking to transfer on writing paper.
Writing paper with their opinion on it.
I hope you enjoy this as much as my students do.
Giddy Up and get them to voice their opinion. Happy teaching :0)
